smells like cloves, banana, sythentically sweetened grape bubblegum. looks like cloudy piss with first-in-the-morning style head. tastes OK. like a good belgian white that was artificially sweetened... and a bit sour. i had a bad experience with this. though i've had it before, i ordered a pint just so i could rate it based on fresh observations. i had 1 pint. it was my only pint of the day. five minutes afterwards, i puked. this doesn't sit in my stomach well. thanks, coors.

Appearance: cloudy golden (like apple cider) with decent head that seemed to last a bit. Smell: strange, at first reminded me of soap... then the scent kicked in: the smell was that of one of those urinal "breath mints." Taste: tasted just like it smelled, but not really soapy. Instead, floraly, and fruity. Better than average taste, since it's kinda strange, but definitely not something I'd drink more than one at a time. Mouthfeel: not bad... feels like it tastes and smells. Drinkability: One is drinkable, two is not. This is a one-a-night beer. More than that would upset the stomach, as it's too fruity and filling (or maybe after awhile the constant smell of the urinal "breath mint" would send you gagging.)

Yellowish slight haze. Medium-light body with mild bitterness. Tropical fruit aromas. This seems to have significant amounts of citrus flavoring. Clean finish with mild floral hop notes. Certainly the best beer that Coors makes but still not great.

A bit a coriander and orange flavor, but that is about it. Another one of those beers that college students think is the best beer in the world.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2007 Considering it is made in a macro this is not a bad beer. Blue Moon was my first experience with a wheat, and while I’ve since found that the true Belgian beers are better this one will do in a pinch.

One of the worst Belgian ales I've ever tasted.....not impressed. Not as bitter as a belgian ale should be, but then again it's coors...so that speaks for itself

Coors actually made a beer that has nuances of true witbier. I'm impressed. Nice yeasty nose and flavor. Plenty of malt. I'm a fan. Thick ole head, medium bodied.

This is what people rave about??? This beer is confused as to what it is trying to be. Its got WAY to much coriander, not enough orange. Not enough wheat, lots of froth. Coors really needs to re-think this one....

(Bottle) Preface: I know zilch about Witbier. That being said, I like the malt and citrus aroma, not so wild about the hazy gold color, but it sounds like that is the trait of a witbier. The foamy head is very light and dissipates quickly, leaving almost no lacing. The flavor is OK- cardamon? is interesting, I like the wheaty aftertaste, even though I prefer a little more hops "bite" than this provides, but again, I'm not sure that's expected of a witbier. I'd have to be in the mood for this, but I'd drink it again. This is good enough to make me try some "true" Belgian Whites.
